This paper discusses John Gato's book about his experience as a teacher and the influence it had on the movement to form charter schools. The paper talks about the problems Gato and his colleagues experienced as teachers in the public school system and the solutions they propose to remedy the situation.

From the Paper:

"The impact of these 7 rules are felt at every level, and in response children learn that their efforts are misplaced in school, and their time could be better spent elsewhere. For these reasons, children become less interested in school, and then teachers have to invent more exciting reasons for them to become involved in the classroom. Instead of rewarding poor performance with passing student to higher grades regardless of what they know, and rewarding the schools with more money regardless of the educational quality maybe it's time for a radical new approach."
